Daniel, it would be very hard for me to give you an answer on this. Can you supply a photo? The only saddle tank HOn3 loco that I am familiar with is the old Kemtron "Teakettle" and it was a kit. However, are you quite sure that it will not operate on code 55 rail? Even the old Kemtron loco could operate on the track. If all else fails, how about soldering the rail to printed circuit board ties (explained elsewhere in Freerails) or perhaps gluing the rail to wood ties with contact cement, epoxy, or maybe some ACC (super glue). If you will be hand laying this rail, Micro Engineering makes some super small spikes-"Micro spikes" which are very tiny indeed. I believe that Micro Engineering still makes HOn3 flex track in code 55, turnouts...I just don't know. Good luck, a photo would really be helpful.

Woodie

Daniel, just send your photos here to the Freerails gallery. It is far better than any "photo host" BS and easier to post in a thread. Or just send the photos to the gallery and we can see them there.

Hi Daniel :wave:



As Woodie :cb: said, the Freerails 'Members Gallery' is the way to go with Posting pix. :thumb:

There's lots of info on how to use it, in the 'Photo Posting' Forum.

Very easy, once you've checked out the instructions.



The other method is to use the 'Attachment' Button, at the bottom of the Main Reply Window.



In both cases photos should be under 0.5 Megabytes in file size.

Most 'web-sized' 800x--- or 1024x--- pixel photos are less than this.



All the best.



:)



Si.

I followed your advice and tried glueing the rails in place.... This turned out better than expected, it turned out grate has a matter of fact. I also ordered some micro spikes.

On another subject I will be away for a few weeks. My wife and I are going to Cuba for a month. I will be leaving tomorrow morning on the 7AM flight. So, if you get no response from me you know why.

I would also like to mention what a very nice bunch of people you are.

Dan
